Launched this month, the Reed Carer of the Year Awards 2010
will recognise outstanding contributions made by exceptional
individuals working in Care and Social Work.
Created in 2009 to recognise some of the fantastic contributions made by individuals
working in these challenging areas, the Reed Carer of the Year Awards are run by
Care Jobs, in association with Sue Ryder Care. The awards are open to anyone
working within Social or Domiciliary Care, and each national category winner - the
Reed Carer of the Year 2010 and the Reed Social Worker of the Year 2010 - will
receive £1,000 of holiday vouchers.
Members of the public, clients, service users, fellow carers and social workers can
nominate any individual who they believe has demonstrated extraordinary commitment
in a caring capacity. For each Award nomination1 received by Reed Social Care up
until the 31st May closing date, the recruitment specialist will donate £8.70 to the
Sue Ryder Care charity towards an hour of care.
Regional Winners will be announced in early June, and these outstanding individuals
will each receive a prize hamper, certificate and progress to the national final of
the Reed Carer of the Year 2010 Awards. This event takes place on 2nd September 2010
in London at The Waldorf Hotel, which this year is celebrating it’s 100th
anniversary – just as recruitment specialist Reed is celebrating it’s formation 50

Care divisional director Leslie Weare.
